"the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up the big story this evening. the northeast getting pounded with snow. nbc's jay gray is in boston, and that's still expected to be where the worst of it will happen. jay, governor patrick in massachusetts ordered all cars off the road at 4:00 p.m. today. does it look like people are following that order? >> reporter: hey there and good evening from boston. yeah, for the most part it looks like people are complying with that order to stay off the roadways. from our vantage point over the last couple of hours all we've seen are plows, sanding trucks and emergency officials out. that's good news. it means people are listening. they're inside their homes and trying to ride this storm out. look, this may be the hardest-hit area in this blizzard. forecasters saying we
the administration tried to shoot down any notion that the president was checked out with one top defense issue e-mailing fox saying we had multiple phone calls, e-mails, video conferences with the national security council, state, cia, and all of the other players. panetta stressed many other american installations around the world face threats. >> you capture just willie nilly blow the hell out of a place without knowing what's taking place. >> panetta's testimony raised new questions about syria after he and dempsey revealed the president overruled almost his entire national security team when they pushed to arm the syrian opposition. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? did you support that? >> we did. >> now, white house spokesman jay carney said he could not get into internal deliberations but added the administration has to be very careful not to send weapons that could wind up in the wrong hands. john? >> ed henry for us tonight at the white hou
is going to save them billions of dollars. defense secretary leon panetta is dropping a bombshell on active duty troops and their families, we have exclusive information he will ask today for their pay raises to be cut. from 1.7% to just 1%. obviously this looks a lot like a shot across the bow over those possible defense cuts in the works. in fact secretary panetta minced no words at speaking at georgetown a short while ago. he says the upcoming automatic defense spending cuts threaten, quote, the most serious readiness crisis faced by the military in more than a decade. >> for more than a year and a half, the joint chiefs of staff and i have been extremely vocal about our deep concerns about taking another half trillion dollars out of the defense budget, in an across the board fashion. that hits every area, and that guarantees that we hollow out the military. across the board cuts, that would deeply damage our national security. >> the secretary urged congress to accept president obama's call yesterday for smaller package of cuts to avoid the across the board reductions known as sequestra

hill right now. president obama's pick for defense secretary might actually prefer an old code pink filibuster over the surprising delay he is stuck in now. the chuck hagel nomination seemed like it was done. enough republicans had said they would support mr. hagel's nomination. enough republicans had agreed that they should not filibuster him. but he looked ready to be confirmed by the senate. but now it is not clear when that vote might happen, even though if the -- even though the outcome of that vote is a foregone conclusion. the senate armed services committee has now put off its vote on mr. hagel. and that's because 23 senate republicans are demanding that chuck hagel provide specific financial information about private corporations where he has served on the board. not information about the money he made but information about the corporations themselves. the senators are also demanding that chuck hagel give them copies of every speech he has made in the past five years, including notes you utilized for preparation or in giving the remarks, to which former senator hagel has re
, it isn't good enough. i understand defense spending was down so ramp it up to 1.5%. still terrible. to me all of these arguments just fall flat when we can't get the horsepower the country's numbers to be better and that's with a small positive win on housing which at some point in 2012 hit its infliction point from taking away to adding into gd gdp. >> the issue that you have here -- the issue that you have here isn't the economy is at escape velocity. you're not where the u.s. economy is growing at 3% to 4%. >> let me interrupt you because we have the number on visas. 182 a share is where we're reporting. 182 a share compares to an estimate of 179. the earnings on the bottom line better than expected. here is revenue. 2.85 billion, also better than expected because it was 2.82 billion which was the estimate. vite visa is out and the stock trades up in the extended hour. 182 on 2.85 billion in revenue. >> very positive. >> let get reaction on the visa numbers. joining me to talk more about that in terms of reaction is gill laurier of webbush. thanks for seeing you. >> thanks for having m

. yesterday chuck hagel had a rough first day. he would like to be our next secretary of defense. his appearance was rambling. he was stapl pherg. "the new york daily news" this morning writes whatever president obama sees in chuck hagel, it was largely invisible as he faced his former colleagues. if you missed the testimony, we had it largely here on the channel yesterday. here he is tangling with john mccain over the troop surge in iraq which mr. hagel opposed. >> if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no? >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated that, as i've said. my answer is i'll defer that judgment to history. >> i think history has already made a judgment about the surge, sir, and you're on the wrong side of it. >> do i think it is right that israel was committing a, quote, sickening slaughter as you said on the floor of the senate? >> i would like to read all of it, what i said. first, i said many, many times, senator, every nation has a right to defend itself. >> do you think a sickening slaughter
in the basement of a neighboring building. >>> a grueling day for chuck hagel. the choice for secretary of defense spent much of the day on the defensive with senators grilling hagel on his statements on israel and iran. this was not pretty. was it enough to secure a cabinet position? here is cnn's chris lawrence. >> they attacked chuck hagel from all sides. >> why do you think the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination for secretary of defense? >> give me an example where we've been intim dated by the israeli jewish lobby to do something dumb? >> at time he stumbled through his answers and had to repeatedly correct himself. >> i have just been handed a note that i misspoke. >> reporter: leading one senator to say -- >> i want to clarify the clarify. >> reporter: in the muddle, some things became clear. hagel supports a negotiated reductions in america's nuclear weapons. he'll push for spouses of gay and lesbian troops to receive benefits and he believes the u.s. should talk with iran about its nuclear program. >> that's not negotiation. engagement is not appeasement. >> rep

, particularly younger ones, who say let's cut the defense budget, let those automatic spending cuts take place, and there are lots of senior republicans who say, not so fast. so that's going to be a problem within the republican party as we look ahead. >> where does karl rove and his new super pac fit into that? >> did you ever think republicans would call him a rhino, republican in name only. here you go. i've always thought of karl rove as a conservative. what's going on is his pac has said, you know what, we are tired of someone associated with his pac said to me, quote, the novelty of losing elections has worn off, and what they've decided to do is to start putting their money in primaries. they want to vet republican primary candidates so that by the time they get to the general election they believe they have qualified vetted candidates who can actually win. conservatives are saying, this is not what you should do. you need to let the process work itself out and american crossroads is saying, don't sacrifice ideological purity here. you can't worship at that. what you really need to do i
and representatives do, and i admire that clarity and that honesty. i think he may not be a defense intellectual. he may not have the broad management experience of some of our previous secretaries of defense, but he's not an ideologue. he will give the president sober advice about how, when, and why we should project our military force abroad. >> and as a former enlisted man, he will be able to relate to the tens of thousands of young troops who are being demobilized over the next few years and are coming home with some real problems and with a need for jobs and housing and other things like that. >> from the very start republicans warned they would try to make hagel seem like an anti-semite. look at what one republican aide told "the weekly standard." this was back in december. quote, send us hagel, and we will make sure every american knows he is an anti-semite. we was referring to this quote, and it's gotten outsized attention since hagel was floated as the nominee. it comes from the interview, aaron, that you did back in 2006 for your book "the much too promised land." most people only highligh
on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defense employees on the job. >> we will furlough as many as 800,000 d.o.d. civilians around the country for up to 22 days. they could face a 20% cut in their salary. you don't think that's going to impact on our economy? >> but the recommendation to slow the military pay raise will put troops in the middle of that political fight between congress and the president over spending. >> he should be looking out for soldiers, sailors, airmen marines that he sends into harm's way. >> panetta is proposing just a 1% increase in troop pay for 2014. according to internal pentagon calculations, it should have been at least 1.7%, which was the increase this year. it may not be a huge deduction, but it's badly needed cash for strapped milit
, defense, nondefense. i don't think that's a responsible position. cbo just indicated the economy is improving but slowly. we should not put a break on that. we shouldn't go over this cliff either. >> mr. boehner put out a statement saying that president obama did and cuts and reforms that protect our national defense. what he is saying there doesn't square with what you just said. you said that the republicans want the cuts no matter where they might fall or how. he doesn't seem to be saying that, though. >> that's what their position is now. they said senator coburn said let it happen, eric cantor said let it happen. the proposals they passed through the house never could be considered effectively by the senate. they were drastic provisions. they knew it wasn't going to happen. they have not responded to the present crisis. i think that's what it is. essentially they are saying let it happen. as to who is responsible for the sequester. the speaker agreed to that. he agreed to that. why are we going back -- >> mr. congressman, we'll have to interrupt because the president is abou
